We all are a family.............

Jai Shree Krishna to all of my devotee friends.......

I want to share some lines from the Atharva Veda which embodies the true spirit of humanness expressed, not today, but four thousand years ago...............

We are the birds of the same nest,

We may wear different skins,

We may speak different  languages, 

We may believe in different religions,

We may belong to different cultures,

Yet we share the same home-Our Earth.

Born…

God comes as death

Hare Krsna

Please accept my humble obeisance. All glories to Srila Prabhupada

 

Krishna ultimately presents Himself to the atheist as death. The God comes before the atheists as death and takes away everything. So that is the atheist class realization of God. You will see God at that time of death; after seeing, you will be finished, no more…

Thought Of The Day

So in this Kali-yuga nobody is interested even. We are spreading Krsna consciousness, very few people are interested to know about Krsna or the Supreme Being. So that is not human life. Human life means when we inquire about the Absolute Truth. That is human life. So there are so many societies, so many religious institutions. But nobody is interested to know Krsna, or the Supreme Being. Krsna means the Supreme Being, all-attractive. No educational system, no university. Therefore Krsna…

Lalita Sasti : Appearance Day of Lalita Sakhi

Lalita Sasti : Appearance Day of Lalita Sakhi

Lalita Sakhi Lalita is one of the principal eight sakhis of Srimati Radharani in Vrindavan. It means “playful and charming”. Srimati Radharani is also called as Lalita”. She is a very dear friend of Radha-Krsna. Lalita-sakhi and her assistants incarnate from time to time in the material realm to propogate the topmost mood of serving Radha-Krsna, namely to become a maid-servant of Srimati…

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada

In a world of impending doom, what is known to be Apocalypse,

Insolent raucous men engage in vice,

Gluttony, sloth, delinquency, and despise.

Miscreants on a rampage, the duplicitous at war,

The lecherous let free, the insidious with a worldly zeal do soar!

A woe to all the depraved souls!

Yet in the midst of all this darkness,

Is…

BHAGWAN SRI KRISHNA IN MY WALLET

A small but touching story with a deep message.

A ticket collector in a train found an old worn out wallet in a compartment full of many people. He looked inside to find the name of its owner. There was no clue. All that there was in it, was some money and a picture of Bhagwan Sri Krishna. He held it up and asked, 'Who does this wallet belong…

The Need For Faith- Satsvarupa Dasa Goswami

How can our faith grow from initial interest to full conviction?

Faith is vital for the discharge of devotional service. In Bhagavad-gita (9.3) Krishna says, “Those who are not faithful in this devotional service cannot attain Me, O conqueror of enemies. Therefore they return to the path of birth and death in this material world.” Srila Prabhupada writes in his purport that without faith we cannot attain Krishna. Faith, he says, is developed by associating with devotees. Without such…

Krishna's hypnotism

Prabhupada: So Narada Muni is advising Vyasadeva, tasyaiva hetoh prayateta kovidah. Kovida means intelligent, expert. One who knows things as they are, he's called kovida. So one who is intelligent, he should try to achieve that thing which is not available -- na labhyate yad bhramatam upary adhah -- which is not available even by wandering up and down. This we have already explained in the last meeting, that according to our karma, we are being…

Thought Of The Day

Guru is very confidential servant of Krsna. Why confidential servant? Because he is canvassing door to door, "Please become Krsna conscious. Please surrender to Krsna." Krsna says to Arjuna, sarva-dharman parityajya mam ekam saranam vraja [Bg. 18.66], and guru takes that very mission, but does not say like Krsna, that "Your surrender to me." He says, "Surrender to Krsna." One has to surrender to Krsna through the via media of guru, directly. This is the process. Therefore guru accepts…
